    I think all the teams have plenty to be embarrassed about after the opening games, but most will be able to fix it, England just need to select a team that is not full of experiments with half the side playing out of position, with a number 8 we might have won that. No idea what the Scots are thinking, but I do know they will hit England at 100 mph this coming weekend and it will not be a surprise if they win. For me it's between France and Ireland to be winners this year, but don't see a grand slam coming from anywhere.

            Quinny has a point. What happened to Ireland's dominant tackle count!? Longish article but worth a read.
            It's become obvious that Ireland are no longer feared and that needs to change

                            What a shame was looking like a very dull draw. let’s hope England play as well against us.

                              FFS! How can a team that played as they played against Ireland last week and most of all how they played in Twickers last year can be so terrible as they were today?!!!!!!! Ok, the weather was not made for a rugby game... At least now, because in the past it was played whatever the weather could be... But anyway, if Scots cannot manage to play in such terrible conditions, who can do do it?.. South New-Zealanders, ok, but the team in Otago hasn't the Highlanders name by accident. And this said, I watched Highlanders-Sharks last night, and the Highlanders were soooooo terrible.
                              And please, let's do something for Stuart Hogg! We MUST save the soldier Hogg! Please, invite the Chiefs in the Pro14 or let him leave Brexitland to come back in the North because the man has completely lost his rugby. He helped us last week and gives the game to the Orcs today. A pity, for such a, normally, fantastic player.
                              The Scots (originally Irish, but by now Scotch) were at this time inhabiting Ireland, having driven the Irish (Picts) out of Scotland; while the Picts (originally Scots) were now Irish (living in brackets) and vice versa. It is essential to keep these distinctions clearly in mind (and verce visa).

                                The amount of verbals coming from the English team is incredible. Not sure I've ever heard as much noise coming from a team. They do it in a smart way, too. They're not screaming directly at the ref, but you have about 6 guys, very vocally congratulating the guy attempting to pilfer, just before a penalty is given. Noticed Saracens and their under 20's doing it as well, so it is clearly something that their coaches encourage. Absolutely every decision is celebrated, as if they've just won the euro-millions.

                                Do any psychologists or couch-psychologists here, have an insight into how it affects referees and opposition?
